ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
REVOLUTION OS tells the inside story of the hackers and computer programmers who rebelled against Microsoft the proprietary software model to create Linux and the Open Source movement.

For the past two decades, a loosely organized group of computer hackers, neo-communists, and entrepreneurs has lead the charge in a technological revolution that is undermining Microsoft's monopoly and fundamentally changing the way software is developed and owned. The best known results of this revolution are the Linux operating system and the Open Source movement.

The documentary film REVOLUTION OS explores the Open Source movement's origins through original interviews with the its founding fathers, and depicts the grassroots nature of Linux and Open Source as they march into the mainstream.

Filmed in 35mm Cinemascope on location in Silicon Valley, REVOLUTION OS includes interviews with the Finnish creator of the Linux kernel, Linus Torvalds, and other key figures like Richard Stallman, Brian Behlendorf, Bruce Perens, and Eric Raymond.

Shot in cinemascope on 35mm film in Silicon Valley, REVOLUTION OS depicts an unusual group of characters that are three-parts libertarian, two parts communist, and one-part bad garage band. Revolution OS stars Linus Torvalds - the creator of Linux, and Richard Stallman - the ideological godfather of the movement, and features interviews with high-tech luminaries like Bruce Perens, Eric Raymond, Brian Behlendorf, Michael Tiemann, Larry Augustin, Frank Hecker, and Rob Malda.

REVOLUTION OS is a Region-Free DVD to ensure worldwide DVD
player compatibility.

The two-disc special edition DVD includes the following extra features:

- 70 minutes of additional interview footage and deleted scenes with Linus Torvalds, Richard Stallman, Brian Behlendorf, Michael Tiemann and Bruce Perens.

- The music video of "The Free Software Song"

- Director's audio commentary

- Trailers

- Still image gallery

- Over 120 pages of GNU and Open Source documents

- Widescreen, letterboxed image (2.35:1)

A must for anyone who's ever used a computer!
I can't have finished watching this film more than 10 minutes ago and do you know I feel great? More than simply telling the story of Linux's rise from infancy to maturity, this film has a really big "feel good" factor. This primarily comes from Richard Stallman, founder of the Free Software Foundation. For him, this really is a lifestyle and you can really see that he believes in it with every cell in his body (mostly in his beard methinks). It is also seen in the other interviewees, who all give delightful accounts of their experiences in making Linux what it is today. Especially worthy of mention though, is the film's angle. I thoroughly support its claim that it is aimed at technies and newbies alike. I felt more than comfortable with it, having used Linux for over six months now and I'm sure that it would not insult the intelligence of even the most frequent visitor to Slashdot.org. More importantly, even the most technologically illiterate monkey could make sense of it and they would appreciate it too. As Linus Torvalds says, it's important for people to see that there are alternatives to Microsoft and this is perfect for doing jusy that. A must for anyone who's ever used a computer!

A Linux-GNU history lesson
There have been many gossips how the Free Software movement started and who is the 'father' of Linux. I personally met Mr. Stalman in 2003 in Lisbon, Portugal and had the opportunity to hear his side of the story. On the other hand I know what Linuz Torvalds has to say about Linux also. Therefore I was pleased to see how the movie shows both views, which merges in one Linux-GNU history lesson. In addition in the film is shown the 'business' progress of linux with some interview with the founders of RedHat and VALinux and others. I recommend this movie to everyone that wants to get the perspective of Linux and the GNU project from heir authors.

Great film, great director!
I recently purchased this film with the hopes of showing it to our local Unix User Group. The film was very informational and entertaining, and the group seems to have liked it quite a bit. We emailed the director about permission to show it at our meeting, and then for permission to watch it during an upcoming install fest. J.T.S. Moore was very approachable, and very generously granted us permission for both. Would definitely buy more from this director.

Worth every penny!
I agree with previous review.
Movie is good, it is done professionally.
I actually liked more second DVD with actual interviews but the story on first is also important.
You won't regret bying it as it has been done in Free software style without CSS.

Can't get enough of this
I've watched this movie over and over again and can't get enough of it. :D

The movie isn't that high quality, the interview even less... but the information in the movie is great. It tells you the whole story from the ground up where it all began in a "freedom style". I think this is done well by the moviemaker.

People using free or open-source software should really watch this dvd! Recommended.

Intresting
Intresting, but not so good.
One time i can watch it, but twice is too much.
